"We're under a treeeeeeeeeeeee!"

Oprah supports my plan.

At least, that’s what I’m taking away from the news of Big O & Gayle’s trip to Yosemite National Park. The segment was filmed for a two-part series (part one aired on Friday, and part two will air on Nov. 3) for the show that has the BFFs enjoying such outdoorsy things as shopping at REI, roughing it in a pop-up camper, and mixing cocktails by the fire. They even meet up with Ranger Shelton Johnson, who first caught my attention back in August’s issue of Sunset (it’s a sign!). According to this article on Wend and this description on the show’s page, they hope that this appearance will encourage African-Americans and minorities to visit the parks.

Clips from part one are up on Oprah.com; in this particular clip, Oprah teaches me that the secret to a successful camping trip is booze. Thanks, Oprah!
